If Israel were a democracy it would give the Palestinian inhabitants of the west bank, east jerusalem and gaza full Israeli citizenship with equal rights to its Jewish citizens. How can Israel call itself democratic when it maintains an 'apartheid' form of government in the land it claims as its own and which it governs? Israel should make the Palestinians in the West Bank, E Jerusalem and Gaza equal citizens of Israel or withdraw from these lands and set the people free. Then the Israelis could call themselves democratic.
